Hillary Clinton Goes After Trump During Chicago Speech

Hillary Clinton wasted no time attacking her Republican rival Donald Trump during a speech in Chicago this afternoon at McCormick Place.

The presumptive presidential Democratic nominee called Trump's ideas "incoherent"  at a women's luncheon on Monday.

"Every day Donald Trump proves that he’s not in this for the American people," she said. "He’s in it for himself. And he’s temperamentally unfit to be president."

During her 30-minute speech, Clinton also addressed gun control and abortion rights. She acknowledged that she knows some people don't trust her. She said it may seem like she's cautious with her words but that's not because she's hiding something, rather it's because she thinks about what she's going to say before she says it.
